Debate Over The State of The Black Community
After posting a fiery article last week calling out Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s controversial remarks about the Black work ethic; I was contacted to appear on his nationally syndicated radio show, The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.
This will give me the opportunity to debate his comments, hear his point of view and hopefully come to a consensus.
To give you an overview Rev. Peterson said:
“One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working. I’m going to put them all on the plantation. They need a good hard education on what it is to work.”
He also added, “Many black women have had babies out of wedlock and passed that on to their daughters that if they have babies out of wedlock, they’ll get food stamps, free houses and your rent paid.”
His broad generalizations were in agreement with Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s comments about welfare and strategies to get the poor working.
This will be a steamy debate about a hot topic in the news right now.
The show will air at 9:20 a.m. Eastern Time and 6:20 Pacific Time.
Also feel free to call-in with your comments or concerns at 1-888-775-3773.
I look forward to this discussion and hope that you’ll all tune-in!
